Re: Promiscuous mode doesn't work on Intel 3945 wireless

   Intel 3945 works perfectly in promiscuous mode here (Gentoo Linux). Thus, 
it must be some specific problem with your configuration/machine/whatever.

A Dissabte 19 Gener 2008, techlists () comcast net va escriure:
I am having trouble getting my laptop to go into promiscuous mode on its
wireless connection.

It's a Dell Inspiron 640m with an Intel 3945abg wireless card.

Promiscuous mode doesn't work in either Windows XP or in Ubuntu linux (it's
configured for dual booting). Using wireshark, if you try to use
promiscuous mode to capture packets, it won't capture anything at all. It
only captures packets if promiscuous mode is turned off.

Is this a known limitation with this wireless card? Or is there a
configuration trick I'm missing?
